With the increasing use of PEEK-matrix materials in various fretting conditions, it is necessary to study their own unique response to the special application.
Fretting wear was investigated on vibration burnished and polished samples.
Fretting fatigue fracture occur when residual wear particles causes a fatigue crack that extends inward on the mating surface between components.
Interference fit is a common mechanical component, semipermanent assembly, often because of the elastic deformation amount of the difference between the assembly parts, resulting in the local area of the contact surface relative reciprocating motion of small amplitude, which causes fretting damage [1].
Fretting fatigue phenomenon occurs when two surfaces in contact simultaneously encounter sliding movements and fluctuating loads.
